Museum of Fine Arts The permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg is richer by three works that were recently added. It's an eclectic trio: a bucolic French landscape, an academic drawing and a startling photographic portrait. William Anderson Coffin's landscape is a view of the village of Grez-sur-Loing, a French artists' colony whose visitors included writer Robert Louis Stevenson, composer Frederick Delius and painter John Singer Sargent. One of the world's most well-known contemporary photographers, Cindy Sherman's 2003 self-portrait, Woman in Sundress, makes her unrecognizable and exaggerate the details of the character she portrays — a person whose type we have seen if we have lived in Florida for any length of time. And Georges Clairin (1843-1919) was a French academic painter with exquisite technique. You see it in this study, probably for one of his famous paintings for the Paris Opera in the late 19th century. The three new works will be on view for several weeks at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, 255 Beach Drive NE. For hours and admission, see or call (727) 896-2667.
